Before choosing an apprenticeship, make sure you understand what is involved. Look at the kind of work being done by apprentices in the area you would like.
Ask employers, qualified people or apprentices themselves for advice and ask about the type of career opportunities on offer.
You can also go to a career guidance counsellor, or to your local guidance service to help you make your choice.
To secure an apprenticeship, the first step is to identify an employer in the specific craft or occupation that you are interested in, who employs apprentices. For new apprenticeships listed below, further information is also available from the lead for that apprenticeship:
